BLUE DAZE



I DO love our BLUE MONDAY, that SMILING SALLY gives us each and every week...
Don't forget to go over and leave her a great big THANK YOU for doing this for us...
and, while you're there...take a tour of all the other BLUES posted just for YOU !!

now....I am pretty sure that only a few others in this world think this picture of this precious little boy is THE CUTEST ONE THEY HAVE EVER SEEN IN THEIR ENTIRE LIFETIME ON THIS EARTH....BUT.....
I DO !!
How much cuter could it get than to have his 2nd Halloween as a little train engineer, all decked out in his BLUE and WHITE stripe overalls and cap....
Be still my foolish heart !!!
this little fella is now 18 years old and my first grandson...
*

I have really searched my house, high and low, for things the color of BLUE
that I have not already shared....
This is a blue, wooden cross that Beautiful Daughter gave to me several years ago....
*

a plate from MEXICO...a gift from Beautiful Daughter from one of her cruises...
*


THIS one is also from Beautiful Daughter...
while we were on OUR cruise, I looked for a pretty pitcher but didn't see one that struck my fancy.....
When we got back home, she brought THIS BEAUTY over to me...
She had gone off shopping in a different store and found it, wanted to surprise me with it and she did a FABULOUS JOB....both picking out a pretty one AND surprising me!!
THANK YOU, SWEETHEART ! YOU KNOW I LOVE IT !
********
*
OH !.......

*

get a plate out of the cabinet and have a slice of BLUEBERRY PIE.....I MIGHT even have a little Vanilla Bean Ice Cream left to put on top....

XO bj

bj...oh to be your neighbor! That pie looks absolutely delicious and the strawberries dipped in chocolate..well...my behind is big enough as it is..but WHO CARES! :)
Your grandson..is adorable. Do you have a picture of him at 18? You must post it! My oldest now has a tiny little girl, Emilie Ann. I wish her Grandpa could see her. I think he does. I do.
Happy Blue Monday to you, bj.

What a precious little engineer ... and such an authentic-looking Halloween costume.

I hope your "Blue Monday" is filled with sunshine.

Sweet little engineer, BJ!

The blueberry pie looks delish!!

Happy Blue Monday, dear BJ. I know your beautiful daughter loves you very much.

That pie would be delicious as my breakfast. ;-)

JudyBug said...

Wow! You have me with the first picture of that cute grandson. I want a grandchild so badly.

Then to end with that scrumptious pie! I hate diets.

Smilingsal said...

I have not seen as cute an engineer before for Halloween. You shared so many blue things. Try one at a time to streeetch it out. Thanks for sharing. Happy Blue Monday.


I'll take a big piece of that pie, along with the ice cream, thankyewverymuch.

Kathleen Grace said...

What a precious photo of your grandson! I look at pictures like that of my children and, while I love the young women they have become, I sure do miss the little girls in the photos! I think I might need a slice of that blueberry pie with ice cream to console myself!

Sherri S said...

Oh I want pie! The pitcher is awesome. I love the photo made all 'old time'! He is a cutie.

JudyBug said...

bj...after reading your comments on mine, I just had to come back and comment. I was laughing and saying "Amen sister" at the same time. I even read it to Mr. Dumpling.

Like you, I don't understand. I agree. Pres. Truman was one of the few that has kept my respect with all I have read. Some of the others? Yech.

Diane@A Picture is Worth.... said...

That is an adorable picture of your grandson! I love photos from the past and the memories they bring back.

Your blueberry pie looks yummy!

Raggedy Girl said...

That is a really cute little engineer! Thank you for sharing all your blue.

Happy Presidents Day To You

ellen b. said...

Good morning Bj! Wow it's hard to believe you could have an 18 year old grandson! He really is so cute in his engineer outfit! Enjoyed all the other pretty blue at your house but that blueberry pie is calling out to me! Have a great Monday!

The Quintessential Magpie said...

BJ, what a precious little boy in his cute outfit! Loved your other blue for us, too, and especially that pie. Looks DELICIOUS!

Happy Blue Monday...

XO,

Morning BJ...I'm still in Nana-mode over here at my place until late this afternoon...and I will say the picture of your grandson at age 2 is mighty precious...2nd only to my own grandboy...LOL
Your Stacey is a darling, isn't she! Wish I had a piece of that pie...with ice cream of course!
Hugs, ;-) Bo

jeanne said...

Hello BJ, I do love your blue today. That photo of your grandson takes my breath away. He is the cutest little guy ever. (next to mine) BIG SMILE! We grandmas have our bragging rights.

Love the cross in blue and the pitcher from your cruise is a great memento from your daughter. She did GOOD! surprising you. I have a feeling that is not easy. It is lovely too.

BJ, I have lost 11 pounds since my surgery two weeks ago. I sure could use some of those calories right now. Blueberry pie, mmmmmmm.

One more week to getting out and GETTING DRESSED. I'm getting there.

Love you...Jeanne

Howdy! I'm Ruth Ann said...

Hello Miss BJ! thank you ever so much for stopping by my blog and for the wonderful comment you left me...what an encourager you are! I would love it if you would mention my blog on yours anytime! In fact feel free to post any pictures if you want! Link'em on over! The more gals I can reach to point the way to a happier home the better!

Hey I noticed you like Sam Elliot the actor...I do too! My favorite movie with him is Prancer! One of my all time faves during Christmas time!! Have you seen it?

My oh my that blueberry pie looks scrumptious!
God Bless you and send some gals over!

Melissa Miller said...

~How pretty.
Happy Blue Monday! ;)

salmagundi said...

Of course, he is the cutest little one in the world - he's your grandson. I feel the same way about mine - it's our job!!!!! Loved the pitcher. Sally

Sweetie said...

BJ - What a sweet engineer - where do the years go? Now that pie - my mouth is watering! I also want to mention that I think I read on one of your comments that you are a member of the DAR. Alas - I have one line to document and I've been working on it for years. I even visited my Revolutionary War ancestor's grave. The documentation involves the time period betweenn 1810 and 1828. I have been told that the SAR would accept the information that I have but the DAR will not. I really got off the subject. Happy Blue Monday.

Life on Bonnie Lane said...

I love that little train engineer pic! My grandfather worked for the railroad, so it made me think of him...I know that sounds weird as this is a pic of your little grandson, but the clothes and the props trigger that memory.

Love that blueberry pie, and those luscious strawberries in your next post!
